We received inquiries from customers regarding gifts to the Book Group in a Bag service. We are grateful for their support. The library continues to add new selections each year to expand this collection and offer more choices to our community’s book discussion groups. View current Book group in a Bag titles.
By compiling customer suggestions, reading book reviews, and choosing popular titles for book discussion, we have developed a Wish List for future Book Group in a Bag titles.
